The "I Want" video begins with a placid Japanese bossa nova track overlaid over Madeintyo's snuggle/anime-watching session with his girl. Then suddenly, Richie Souf's apocalyptic 808s and Metro-esque pitched hi-hats come in and Madeintyo puts on a wrist-whipping clinic on the subway.
Like the majority of Madeintyo's songs, "Bool'n" is produced by K Swisha, who apparently is still in college in Vermont or one of the less populated New England states. "Bool'n" is broken up into two parts. On the second part, Tokyo channels the "holla holla" guy from Chappelle's Show as he repeats the catchy refrain, "smell like a hundred dollar bill."
In "Nawfside Shawty", an ode to the ladies of Gwinnett County and everywhere in northside Atlanta, Madeintyo raps enthusiastically over some inspiring production K Swisha. Similar to the refrain on "Bool'n", "Nawfside Shawty" ends with an infectious, olfactory-related chorus: "When you headed to the bank, smelling like some stank."
"Whoeva" came out around the same time Kobe dropped 60 in his final game. It pays tribute to Kobe in the same way Young Thug's "Texas Love" pays tribute to the Houston flood victims of "F Cancer" pays tribute to Boosie and cancer victims. Which is to say, it barely pays tribute at all. Track still goes though.
"Party Bus" w/ Swae Lee & Royce Rizzy (prod. Murda Beatz)
Murda Beatz's production style gives Madeintyo's raps a decidedly different flavor than that of K Swisha. While K Swisha's beats are generally light and playful, Murda's tend to fall more into the "banger" category. "Party Bus" sounds like Michael Jordan's intro music (Alan Parsons Project - "Sirius"). Tokyo is joined by Swae Lee and his older brother Royce Rizzy.
An utterly carefree summer jam, "Kelly Rowland" is closest in spirit to "Uber Everywhere" of any song in Tokyo's catalogue. Like "Uber Everywhere," it features a Tokyo at the pinnacle of his lyrical wit: "Shawty thick, can't wear a thong."
"Need Dat Pack"
ICYTWAT aka the new king of the chord trigger aka the new DJ Rashad produced "Need Dat Pack" along with Mexikodro and grime innovator Novelist. ICYTWAT"s Divine Council recently signed a deal with LA Reid... with a name like that, there is no way he can fail.
A track from Tokyo's breakout tape You Are Forgiven, "Savage" features an extended outro -- "Hey, hey, always been a savage" -- that gives him an opportunity to flex his prodigious ad lib skills. The song's charm is that its lyrical content does not match the overall vibe (K Swisha). That actually accounts for a lot of Tokyo's charm in general.
When rappers compare themselves to hoopers, they mention Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and even Manu Ginobli before they mention a dude like former NBA scoring champion Jerry Stackhouse. Like "Savage", "Jerry Stackhouse" features an extended chorus outro that allows Madeintyo to play to his greatest strength -- the ad lib.
"Uber Everywhere" is currently lingering around 13 million views... 12 million views have come in the last four months (the song was released nine months ago). The Travis Scott remix definitely helped, but credit should be given to the song's unforgettable lyrics "(Shawty wanna kiss me, but I know she sucking dick") and A1 music video. He weathers the southern summertime heat with a turtleneck and swaggers through a park flanked by three 40-sipping, spliff-smoking females... hilarity ensues.
